This has been a favourite of my family's for the past 5 years and we still love it. The atmosphere is great, the owners are so friendly and the service is always fantastic- it strikes a good balance between being attentive and not being too overbearing. Our last visit was for my 23rd birthday meal. My mum and dad went... More

Quality presentation and cooking of the food excellent. Turkey dinner very good with the exception of the lack of ROAST potatoes, the only negative thing about the whole meal. Maybe I'm a traditionalist but ROASTIES for me are a must on a roast dinner. Otherwise faultless grub.

I was a bit underwhelmed by the food which apart from the desert was very bland and not very hot. Service was worse than the food we were seated upstairs and I think we got forgotten about and waited ages for service. There are some excellent eating places in Formby maybe we got a bad night with the chef off... More

Fairly quiet for an early doors meal on a Saturday night but the restaurant filled up by 7-30 pm. The owner was attentive as usual without being over the top. The food and service were good and the surroundings pleasant. Well worth a return visit.

Went for dinner on Tuesday with friends, and as always it was just fab! The food is absolutely beautiful and being vegan can be challenging for some restaurants, but not here! The staff could not do enough to accommodate my requirements and in turn I truly enjoyed all of my delicious food. It has a lovely atmosphere and is really... More

I have eaten here before and enjoyed my meal but I have to say that tonight's meal was the worst meal I have ever had in a restaurant! It started with breaded brie which was deep fried until it was almost black. I then followed this with Pan fried chicken in a Marsala sauce. When it came I was assaulted... More
